BMW And Mercedes-Benz To Further Push Their Autonomous Collaboration

Both BMW and Mercedes-Benz plan on launching autonomous vehicles by 2024 by co-developing technologies.

It was last February that the two German luxury car giants announced that they were joining forces to develop and further advance autonomous driving technologies. They’ve now just released more details on what this joint venture will involve. And it looks like fight-to-the-death rivals BMW and Mercedes-Benz are going to be friends for a while.

At least where developing this autonomous driving technology is concerned. This undertaking will see the car companies develop a next-generation of technologies for driver assistance systems, Level 4 automated driving tech for highway driving and automated parking. The plan is to launch for 2024 where each participant will implement the new kit as they see fit.

Beyond this, they’re looking to create a scalable platform for automated driving. What’s interesting as well is that this BMW-Benz cooperation is non-exclusive meaning other OEMs and tech companies can join in the fun and spend some of their money.

Partnerships of the like are not unusual in the 21st Century. This is the best way yet to create economies of scale, bring the best minds together and fast-forward both various products and technologies.

As a side-note, many experts think autonomous cars and driving are still decades away while numerous carmakers continue to push hard to bring them to market ASAP.
